An unidentified woman is in serious condition at Bellevue after she was hit on the head by a falling object this morning in midtown. An FDNY spokesman says the woman was struck on the head at approximately 8:30 a.m. The FDNY was not able to provide any further details about the incident or the nature of the "object," but ABC 7 reports that "an 8- to 10-foot long pipe crashed to the ground in front of a McDonald's from scaffolding two doors down. The impact left a dent in the sidewalk."
Employees at McDonald's and two neighboring cafes declined to comment. We'll update as more information becomes available.
